Oh, almost forgot, if you need the images without signature, simply contact me as well.
Not too long ago I started a thread about offering my photographs for your products. I have now released my latest photography-album from my trip to Stockholm, and well, it can also be all yours to use.
Use it and abuse it, and if you need higher resolutions simply contact me.
That’s about it. Have a good one.
Here are some thoughts that I think should help. Feel free to email me if you want to discuss them further.
1. This isn’t about you or somebody being a bad designer, it is about coming out with something completely unexpected that serves no purpose at all. You’re wasting so much time and effort changing elements of the site simply to follow a trend-bandwagon. The fact that other popular sites do it doesn’t mean that you should – or at least not in a 1:1 fashion. If you want to mimic other popular sites’ styles, than take sites such as Behance or Dribbble, etc. for example.
2. Focus on these marketplaces and their content. If the popular sites moving this brightness-trend are mainly text-based, then they are out of the picture and should not be used as visual idols.
3. (despite point no.1) Designing 101: you never use a full-blown color for a main spatial element. That’s a punch in the face, brother.
4. Do it softly. You often get carried away by your euphoric office-bubble and forget how your users may react. Instead of going from 0 to a 100, take it easy and start off with a few things, then a few more, and see where people react negatively. You should take your phased roll-outs as examples: as far as I know, they haven’t triggered a wave of hate such as your sudden roll-outs.
5. And don’t fire anybody, just listen. Listen carefully.
Hasta la vista,
I sometimes don’t understand why people want to do something just for the sake of doing it. Only because it is trendy or because they are getting tired of the old.
Considering that the old had to be changed, than a tad-brighter background would have worked, and the font-size could have remained the same.
Darkness makes me happy!
The pupil dilatation is real, by the way – no fake animated black-circle or something.
The only thing I didn’t like was the opening credits, kinda small for me. Everything else was done very well!
Completely agree with that. To be honest, I just wanted to do something different with the opening credits, but sometimes the ideal way has already been found and should be kept. Thank you!
Is this as in you spoke with Loco Dice and you aggreed that you were going to make him an intro video or something?
(Why not use a track of Loco Dice himself?)Edit: Nice graphics in the video btw!
Thank you! Not directly, but yes. The reason being that it should be a quick opener which required a song that quickly evolves – his music on the other hand is much slower.
